Edgar is 46 years old. He lives in the city of Pisco. This city is known for its warm and pleaasing climate. Here we can find popular tourist sites such as the "Ballestas and Paracas Islands”. There is agriculture there, especially cotton and corn, among others. Edgar is the father of 1 nine month old son, whom he adores and for whom he works hard every day to be able to give him what he needs. He wants him to be much better than he himself is, especially with his wife's help. She is his right hand and best friend. When he has a little free time, he likes to spend time with his family and also play soccer with his friends and neighbors. He also likes to ask his wife to make one of his favorite dishes, whish is the delicious “Duck and rice”.

Edgar works day to day in his little business as a taxi driver. He does this every day to pay for the household expenses. He works around 10 hours a day and serves up to 20 customers daily. He belives it is going well for him because he is friendly with the customer and above all because he really wants to get ahead for the good of his family.

Edgar is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since with their help he has been able to do some home improvements, such as putting in drywall and flooring and more. This way he can improve his family's quality of life and keep fighting to make his big dream come true: finish building his house and give his son a good education.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
